Irving Boys Baseball Association

Young boys’ baseball team, seen from behind, on bench with arms around each other.For more than 50 years, the Irving Boys Baseball Association (IBBA) has been teaching Irving youth the game of baseball. Beginning with four-year-olds in T-Ball and continuing through age 14, boys and girls in the community learn the fundamentals of baseball, sportsmanship, responsibility and teamwork.

These children make lifelong friends while spending time with family. Parents and volunteers often serve as coaches and team leaders. Each volunteer undergoes an in-depth background check prior to participating with a team.

The IBBA assures each player receives playing time during every game and the association has seen many fine athletes develop over the years. It offers one of the finest sports complexes in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, including a lighting system that allows for night games. These fields are located at the Trinity View Park, 2221 E. Highway 356. The IBBA has been affiliated with the USSSA organization since the 2012 season.
